“Champaign Gal” N744CG is a 1944 B-25J converted to a TB-25N serial number 44-28866. The aircraft was built during WWII but did not see any action. It was used as a training aircraft while in the Army Air Forces and then saw various duties while active in the US Air Force after WWII. In 1958, 44-28866 was converted to civilian use as a fire fighting aircraft and was used to fight forest fires in the western USA. By the late 1980’s the aircraft had seen its day and was not in active use. In the 1990’s a volunteer group in North Carolina started a restoration process to return it to its war time look. The airplane was eventually purchased in 2007 by the Champaign Aviation Museum. Today we fly “Champaign Gal” to airshows and airport events so that the public can appreciate the fight for our freedom during WWII. PRE-PURCHASE TICKETS HERE.
P-51 Mustang – $1595 per person
“Old Red Nose” has had a long and colorful history, dating back to the closing days of World War II. It was produced at the North American Aviation plant in Inglewood, California, and rolled out on 11 April, 1945 and was to accepted by the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) as serial number 44-73843. It was shipped to Page Army Air Force Base in Florida later that month and assigned to the 388th AAF Base Unit of the Third Air Force. Little is known of its service there, but it was probably used for training purposes. In September of 1945 the aircraft was transferred to the 336th Base Unit stationed at Sarasota, Florida. In November of that year, it was shipped to Hobbs AAFB in New Mexico and placed in storage. Its only other journey in the next six years was a transfer to the San Antonio Air Material Center at Kelly Air Force Base in 1947. For more information: WEBSITE
